City Explorer Challenge Registrations Closing

The Cooney Lees Morgan City Explorer Challenge is set to launch in April and will showcase the beauty, variety and opportunity of Tauranga’s numerous cycle and walkways.  With a focus on participation, the challenge is also intended to stimulate friendly inter-workplace rivalry and ultimately contribute to a more fun and vibrant CBD. 

The challenge is an initiative of Sport Bay of Plenty’s Play in the Bay programme and encourages businesses to form teams of three and accumulate points by completing as many of the 14 local cycle and walkways as they can, either individually or as a team. 

The event runs from Monday 4th until Friday 29th of April and also features two lunchtime challenges – one involving fun activities and team building games and the other a scavenger hunt where teams can earn vital bonus points and bragging rights.

Cooney Lees Morgan are proud supporters of the City Explorer Challenge and Practice Manager, Chris Mayes says the event was a great fit for the Tauranga law firm.

“Being huge advocates of an active lifestyle for office bound professionals made supporting the City Explorer Challenge an easy choice for Cooney Lees Morgan.  We’ve seen first-hand how regular physical activity increases morale, improves motivation, and promotes the mental sharpness that clients love.  Good on you to all the participants for getting involved.  Now get out there and enjoy playing in the Bay!”

Prizes from Ride Bikes, Podium Podiatry and Footwear and Robert Harris are up for grabs for overall points, most teams from one workplace and best team photo on Facebook as well as additional mini challenges issued throughout the month. 

Register online at by 5:00pm, 31st March - all teams will receive a recording sheet, challenge guidelines and a booklet outlining the 14 cycle and walkways.
